    INGREDIENTS

    * 1 egg
    * 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    * 2/3 cup beer
    * 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    * 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    * 2 cups flaked coconut
    * 24 shrimp
    * 3 cups oil for frying



    DIRECTIONS

    1. In medium bowl, combine egg, 1/2 cup flour, beer and baking powder. Place 1/4 cup flour and coconut in two separate bowls.

    2. Hold shrimp by tail, and dredge in flour, shaking off excess flour. Dip in egg/beer batter; allow excess to drip off. Roll shrimp in coconut, and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, heat oil to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) in a deep-fryer.

    3. Fry shrimp in batches: cook, turning once, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown. Using tongs, remove shrimp to paper towels to drain. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.

    Baking powder leavens the batter, making it lighter.

    Throw out that brine, you're going to overwhelm the flavor of the beer, coconut and shrimp.
